Is Traveling the World While Working Entry Level Remote Jobs Really a Possibility?

Absolutely! We started doing this in 2013. It started out as an entry level remote job then. Now though it’s a well paying career. And, before we left the States we were a bartender and chef. Not exactly jobs that transition very well to online work. Trust us, if we can figure this out, anyone can.

If you’ve read our blog “10 Tips on how to Save that Money and Finally go Overseas” you’ll see that we had a bit of savings when we first started traveling. That didn’t last long. We realized after a few months that if we wanted to maintain our nomadic AF lifestyle, we were going to have to find some kind of entry level remote jobs.

How we Found our First Entry Level Remote Jobs

After about 8 months of traveling, we found ourselves sitting on the beach in Nicaragua and contemplating our circumstances. Over the past few months, we’d been spending money as if it were going out of style. If we wanted to continue our travels, we were going to have to earn an income.

We both loved to write, so we decided to start there. After some online research, we decided to open an account on Fiverr. We could offer our writing services on their platform and charge whatever we wanted. After a month or so on Fiverr we started making some money. Not a lot, but enough to keep us in Nicaragua for the foreseeable future.

If you’re actually serious about working remotely and traveling the world we suggest starting with Fiverr. It’s free to join, you can offer nearly any kind of service you can imagine, and you can charge whatever you like. All of the money you make is deposited into your Paypal account and you can withdraw that money from ATM machines anywhere in the world.

Not Interested in Fiverr? Here are 20 Other Entry Level Remote Jobs you can do from Anywhere.

Remember, these are entry level remote jobs. That means the pay will be less than a job that you are highly qualified for. Do not let that discourage you. Even if you’re making only $12usd an hour, you can easily live like royalty in any number of beach towns throughout the world (no joke, we’ve done it). And now, on to the jobs…

1. Call Center Rep

If you have a laptop, a stable internet connection, and a few hours a day to spare a call center representative is a remote job that can be done from anywhere in the world. The duties involved could be anything from opening support tickets for software companies to collecting data from people who are calling in for prices on insurance.

Call center reps usually spend a week or two in paid training (remotely). They then set their own hours and work from wherever they like. Pay starts at around $23k a year and goes up with experience.

2. Content Moderator

Do you find yourself on social media more often than not? Then why not get paid for it? Content moderators are used by small internet marketing agencies, as well as large international corporations. Their job is to monitor social media posts and replies to ensure that they meet the corporation’s standards.

The pay for a content moderator isn’t much. This entry level remote job starts at about $10\hr. Not a whole lot if you’re living in NYC. Plenty of money though if you’re living in a Mexican beach town. Plus, if you’re already strolling through Facebook or YouTube, why not make some money while you’re there.

3. Customer Service Associate

Customer service associates are usually the first person someone speaks with when they’re unhappy with a product or service. This job is not for the faint of heart. If you’re good with people though and enjoy being on the phone, you may want to consider this entry level job.

Different companies will have different hardware requirements for this job. Some may want you to have a US based phone number (which could be difficult for a nomad). Others may need you to have a newer computer to install their software on. Once you’re set up though, this job can be done from anywhere you’re living.

Customer service associates start at a salary of around 21k\yr.

4. Data Entry Clerk

The only qualifications for an entry level data entry clerk is the ability to use a keyboard. That’s about it. With this job your employer will send you data that they need input into their databases. Pretty easy work and it can be done from anywhere in the world.

While an entry level data entry clerk may only start at 21k\yr, you can live pretty nicely on this kind of money pretty much anywhere “south of the border”, in SE Asia, or even Eastern Europe

5. Virtual Assistant (VA)

A virtual assistant job is basically exactly what it sounds like. You will be doing tasks for a person or company that they don’t have the time, or desire to accomplish. What exact tasks you’ll be doing really just depends on the employer. You may be replying to emails one day and transcribing meeting notes the next.

There are hundreds of VA jobs available on various job boards. As a VA though your best bet is to create a free profile on Fiverr and offer these services on your own. This way you can set your hours and build a client list.

6. E-mail Outreach Specialist

An entry level e-mail outreach specialist really doesn’t make a ton of money. Luckily the job doesn’t entail very much work. Basically you’ll be given a list of email addresses and some copy that someone has written. It’s your job to just copy\paste that copy into an email, and fire it off, and forward any replies off to your employer.

Even though you may only be making $12\hr or so, you’re still being paid a livable wage if you’re living in a country where the US dollar is strong. For example, we live in Playa del Carmen, Mexico usually a few months a year. We have never, ever, spent more than $1000\mo, between the two of us, including rent and going out nearly every day.

If you’re sitting around in your pajamas firing off emails for 6 hours a day, 20 days a month, you’re going to be making around $1500\mo. Enough money not only to live very well, but also enough to actually put some savings away.

7. Online English as a Second Language Teacher (ESL)

Teaching English online is probably how a large percentage of digital nomads make money. The pay is actually pretty good and starts at around 34k\yr. Depending on your employer, you can pretty much pick and choose the hours you work.

The only draw-back to teaching English online is you’re going to have to have pretty good internet speeds. If you plan on traveling to some remote village in the Guatemalan Highlands, this remote job may not work for you.

Qualifications for an online English teacher are all over the place. Some employers require a college degree, others require you to be ESL certified. If neither of these apply to you, or you would rather teach ESL on your own, you can always sign up for a free account on Preply and teach from there.
